Is Your Toyota a Lemon?

A “lemon” is a car, van, truck, SUV or other vehicle that keeps breaking down. For those who’ve experienced accidents due to these issues, a truck accident lawyer may be consulted. Regardless, you take these vehicles into the garage for repairs over and over – sub-standard performance. Whether it’s jerky acceleration, a moonroof that doesn’t work or a wide array of other mechanical or electrical problems, these vehicles never function correctly.

To determine whether you have a Toyota lemon law claim, check to see whether your vehicle is still under the original Toyota Motor Company warranty. If it is, you probably have a claim. If you own a used car or truck, then you will need one of three specific warranties to have a successful claim. They include a (1) Transferred New Car Warranty, (2) Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Warranty, or (3) Lemon Law Buyback Warranty.

You might be wondering what defects are covered under the Toyota lemon law. California law stipulates that “nonconformities” must be present. These are defined as any defect or malfunction that is covered by the manufacturer’s original warranty. Nonconformities compromise the use, value or safety of the Toyota.

The process starts by filing a claim against Toyota Motor Company. One of our attorneys at Neale & Fhima can do this on your behalf. It’s essential to understand the nuances of lemon law legal advice to make a strong case. You will have to show that you’ve made several attempts to have the vehicle repaired, so save all of your receipts, work orders and used parts from your trips to the mechanic. We will need these documents when constructing a strong lemon law claim. Our skilled and experienced Toyota Lemon Law attorneys would be happy to explain the ins and outs of nonconformities in greater detail and help determine whether you have a claim. To read more, see:

What Remedies Can a Toyota Lemon Law Attorney Pursue?

You might be wondering, “Will Toyota buy back my car?” You’re in luck – California has one of the most extensive Toyota lemon laws in the nation. Under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, if you purchase a defective vehicle, you are legally entitled to a remedy at the manufacturer’s expense. The lemon law attorney at Neale & Fhima fight the big auto manufacturers to enforce the lemon law rights of our clients. Remedies include:

Statute of Limitations for California Lemon Law

The statute of limitations for filing a lemon law claim in California is four (4) years from the date a consumer knew or should have known that the vehicle was a lemon. This does not mean that if you have had your vehicle for more than 4 years, you cannot bring a lemon law claim. Our attorneys at Neale & Fhima have successfully “lemoned” vehicles that are over 10 years old. If you have purchased or leased a lemon, you’ll want to start the buyback process as soon as possible. After the statute of limitations has passed, a judge may dismiss your case. Don’t hesitate to contact our team if you have questions about the statute of limitations.
